Thought I would start a thread for a specific surgery date. Sometimes the threads get too long to navigate.

Hi Kay07! Are you excited? Nervous? My doc asked me those questions and I said with all honesty “No, I feel prepared and determined” but in the quiet of the night when I have trouble sleeping, I scroll through these posts and do get a bit nervous. I’m having trouble adjusting to my preop diet. I have to admit I miss my nightly glass of red wine.

Another May 14th checking in. I miss my dark chocolate but I have to admit that I’m really not that hungry anymore. I just wish I had more energy. Less than 900 calories a day is taking it’s toll.

Not nervous at all yet. I am sure I will be as it draws closer, but I’m so committed it feels more like a relief than anything else.

I’ve been on a low cal low carb diet for a few months now in preparation of this, and can’t say I miss things all that much? I have been having so much fun experimenting with new recipes so maybe it’s kept my mind off it.

Although I do miss wine!

I've created a secret Facebook group for May sleevers. In order for it to be secret I can only add "friends" or I can add people using their email. So if you are interested you can either post your email or DM me with it. https://www.facebook.com/groups/210152776255190/

Another suggestion was to change the group name and make it closed so that it is searchable, then once members have joined change it to secret. I am just not comfortable with the world knowing about my surgery.

      Im 4 weeks out now and i still get dizzy a lot, i will be doing the most minimalistic things and suddenly have this rush come over me where i feel week and dizzy. Usually not while I'm working out tho. It will happen on the way home from the gym, or in the shower after the gym. It kind of is just annoying at this point... but I'm down 38 pounds from the hospital and i continue to lose weight every day, weather it be .1 pound or 5 pounds in a day progress is progress. It has also been tough because it is summer and it is the summer before my senior year, i want to be out with my friends and go to parties that they are having but for the first two weeks i was kept at my parents side and they only let me go to a birthday party last week for the first time, i feel like i haven't seen my friends as much as I'm used to in the summer, and it kinda sucks, but at the end of the day it was my choice and i hope i made the right one. Im type excited to go back to band camp physically ready, and mentally motivated to push my self more than before. Im excited to do the 3 laps around the band field and not be 5 minutes behind everyone else. I am excited to lose more weight before band starts and i can wear my new boujee workout gear. I am excited to see if anybody notices my weight loss and if it affects my social life once school starts.

      My Body Image Issues:
      07/20/18 Friday
      I am writing this because it seems like no matter how hard I do love myself and have confidence it's like it's hard to believe the words I say and also my old eating disorder/OCD mind tends to take over sometimes and before I know it I'm counting EVERY food that I eat and feeling very fat/freaking out. I'm trying to do my affirmations everyday and fix myself up nice to make myself feel better but it seems like nothing makes me feel better and I go back to either these bad thoughts or I want to self harm to heal myself or randomly yell at people. I get no stress release from my frustrations thus I become even more OCD spend and have other  bad addictions besides OCD'ing on the food I eat like overly exercise until my feet really blister or hurt or over spend on items I think I need to feel a void. I'm tired of putting myself through the ringer but it feels like nothing is never ever enough for me and I'm always searching for answers in the wrong places.

      Summer heat has been debilitating to taking frequent walks. My future success depends on amping up exercise. So happy to see others achieving remarkable weight loss

      I am struggling right now.  I am working out 4.5 hours a week and it hasn't felt good for the last 2 weeks.  Feels more like a chore and I don't know why.  I am still going but it has been a fight. Corresponding to this I have also been wanting to eat - eat everything we aren't supposed to eat. I have held back for the most part but I have splurged - full sugar vanilla pudding cup, I had a chocolate chip cookie and tortillas. I even stopped tracking my food. I am back on track, but I feel really down right now. I am already seeing someone, and it helps, but wow I am not feeling like myself. I am hoping this is a passing phase. I don't want these feelings to continue. Sigh...
